Everything was beautiful at the ballet

My husband and I took Sophia to her first ballet class today.  Wearing her first pink leotard, Sophia crept into the theatre with us and watched as the older girls danced before the start of her class.  I think I was as nervous as she seemed to be!  And as Sophia let go of my hand and took her first ballet steps, I felt my heart go with her.  Sophia and my heart, pitter-pattering around the room while I looked on.  I hope she loved it.  My little Sophia ballerina.  M x

    ooooohhhh what a special and precious moment.
    ive always wanted a daughter and always dreamed of going to her ballet recitals…. lucky you..
    however, i do have a little boy and the 1st time i took him to his 1st soccer game and watched him run up and down the field trying to kick the ball… i cried.

    kids are amazing.

    I didn’t know you could start them this young? I thought it was 3? I can’t wait to take Amelia! At the moment we are doing swimming lessons but she already loves her tutu (that mummy made) and dances around so I’m guessing it won’t be long before ballet starts.

    Beautiful photo.

    Jane, Sophia’s ballet school just started their 2 year old class. Otherwise I would have had to wait longer.

    Thank you for the beautiful comments! xx
